If TEPCO Ran the Salt Cavern Collapse Response

Ah,. . .  if only the Lake FUBAR fix was as efficient and scientific as TEPCO’s response to multiple melt-downs at their Fukushima-Daiichi nuke plant in Japan!

THEY  would:

  • Hire unskilled workers who don’t know what each other are doing
  • Drive real fast by toxic areas they are supposed to measure for toxicity
  • Hide information from the public
  • Get rid of toxic waste without measuring it for toxicity
  • Give out lots of peppy press releases saying everything is fine
  • Respond when things get worse by saying “We expected that!”
  • Use the cheapest material for temporary fixes to make things “look good”
  • Keep photographers away
  • Silence workers
  • Enlist health authorities to minimize toxicity of air, water and soil
  • Claim they have the best brains in the world working on the problem while shutting out the best brains in the world
  • Gouge displaced residents of relief money or relocation money
  • Encourage the government to hold mega-sports event nearby a big danger zone

Breaking: 6.6 Taiwan Quake – Seismic Activity Continues into Thursday

(CNN) — A 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck the southeastern part of Taiwan late Thursday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
USGS shake map – It happened at 7:09 p.m. last night Louisiana time.

  • Media does NOT report on the huge number of massive earthquakes across the Pacific rim this year. Many 6s in a day sometimes and 7s happening TOO OFTEN.
  • More quake LIVE maps at Radioactive Chat found on the ‘Blog Roll’ on the sidebar.

Non-stop since this past weekend . . .

WWLTV – Work halted at Assumption Sinkhole after containment berm cracks < has VIDEO

By Katie Moore
BAYOU CORNE, La. — Work around the Assumption Parish sinkhole is at a standstill now, after two cracks in the containment berms around it appeared.
Seismic activity has been increasing over the past week, an indication that it may be getting ready to swallow more land. . . .

In Louisiana, a former Army commander goes to war against Big Oil

With the trial of BP for its 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil disaster still underway, and with controversy raging over a lawsuit filed against oil companies for eroding Louisiana’s coast, the industry is facing growing scrutiny for its impact on the region.
Among those speaking out in surprisingly strong terms about the need to rein in out-of-control oil companies is a man who might seem an unlikely messenger for environmental justice: retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, a Point Coupee Parish native and Republican since the Reagan administration who gained national fame for serving as commander of Joint Task Force Katrina following the 2005 disaster. He now works to promote disaster preparedness. . . .

A second crack has been discovered on the South Berm toward the western corner. Although this crack doesn’t go all the way across the berm, we will continue to monitor all these areas for continued changes.
